-- $3000 to $4000. that represents a million full decline in price in less than a decade. i don't think there is any other technology that can boast that kind of decline in cost in so little time. for the cost of an mri, we can get your entire dna sequenced. unlike an mri result, your sequence won't change. this gives us a tremendous amount of information about each and every human who is sequenced. thousands, hundreds of thousands of people are being sequenced in various biomedical studies. family toirst human be completely sequenced is a family from utah. that just happens to be my wife and her children. for me, we had an exercise in personal genome that turned out to be very fulfilling. occasionally, in our dna sequence -- here is a sequence shown on this slide. a couple of helix, the bases, and an occasionally -- and occasionally a mutation occurs. this is what we learned from sequencing that one family. we were able to estimate the rate of mutation, how often do these occur? each time we reproduce, we transmit about 30 new mutations to our offspring. most of these are in the 99% of
